Many conservationists are raising alarm about growing ocean pollution caused by the increased waste created out of the coronavirus pandemic.

A recent study in the Environment, Science & Technology journal estimates that 129 billion face masks and 65 billion gloves are being used each month.
Regarding COVID waste, of course we must favor reusable masks and gloves.
